Take a look behind the scenes in our factories at how the products are made.


We’ve made significant investments, both in resources and equipment, including more than 300.000 engineering hours, 40.000 hours of hard testing in rigs and boats, and upgrades in machining and production line technology. It’s all in the details. Ensuring precision and endurance in every gear, shaft, bearing, screw, and nut was a necessity. The final assembly of the D4/D6 package is a vital part of the life of the product; here is where precision is critical. The drive assembly is made at our top of the line facility in Köping, where we carry out the finalization in a clean-room environment, with high precision, and with Swedish produced steel. The engines are produced in a highly advanced facility in Vara, Sweden that ensures a 100% CO2 neutral production process. Our facility in Vara was the first example of a CO2 neutral production facility within the Volvo Group.
